Controversial, so removed.

Very nicely done to get the starburst effect. The town looks pretty quiet. What time did you take this photo, after everyone was asleep?

Well it is the holiday season and the challenge is holiday lights. Technically, it qualifies. But, on the other hand, you could shoot that any night of the year, so from that standpoint maybe it doesn't qualify.

Anyway, I like it. What is really impressive if you can find a place to do it, is to find a street where you can see the streetlights for several blocks and get a shot when they are all red.

Look closer, everybody. I assure you, the thrifty citizens of this small West Texas town don't waste money on year-round red lights on the tops of the buildings and holiday lights on the lamp posts on Main Street.
They do in Dallas... Been there. Seen that. As a matter of fact.... I was sitting
outside "Dallas Alley" at lunch time one summer day and realized the tree not only
had lights... They were on! Nut'n prettier then tiny lights in the blazing Texas sun.

But I believe ya. Really... Sure...

PS: Just kid'n with ya... I love Texas and everyone is so nice when I've beenthere.
But you do knowthe term "Tall Texas Tale" ? You're not going to try and sell us
an oil well or gold mine are ya?

Like others I was puzzled at first why anyone wuld submit a normal street scene with building lights, then as Leon noted I saw the ornamental lights atop the buildings along with what appeared to be rosettes. In my mind I didn't think this was a normal lighting pattern and was undoubtedly done for the Holiday Season.

I decided that this qualified for the challenge.
